Visit to Belgium of Minister Anna Maria Anders of Poland

The purpose of the visit of the Secretary of State for International Dialogue to the Prime Minister's Chancellery was to inaugurate the historical-tourist programme entitled "The Liberation Route of the First Armoured Division of General S. Maczek".

This project will be implemented on the occasion of the 75th anniversary of the liberation of Flanders by General Maczek's soldiers, celebrated in 2019. The aim of this initiative is to remind Europeans and Poles of their role in the liberation of Europe during the Second World War. As part of this project, various initiatives will be carried out, including the publication of a historical-tourist guide containing information on more than a hundred localities in France, Belgium and the Netherlands liberated by the First Division, but also the creation of a mobile application, the organisation of a cycle ride along the route followed by General Maczek's troops, as well as the setting up of several exhibitions in Warsaw and Belgium, notably as part of the "Stop History" ("Przystanek Historia") cycle of meetings.

The rich programme of the two-day visit (5 and 6 September) of Minister A. Mr Anders included a dinner at the Polish Embassy in Brussels with representatives of Polonia, Polish veterans, historians and military personnel. Minister Anna Maria Anders also visited the Polish-Canadian Museum of the Second World War in Adegem (Flanders), founded by Gilbert Landeschoot, and laid flowers and a commemorative inscription in the Maldegem cemetery.
